Brow lift surgery, or temporal brow lift, is an outpatient surgical procedure. The surgeon makes one-inch incisions above the hairline, just over each temple, to manipulate the tissue under the outer brow areas. It can be done alongside eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).
Patients may feel like their forehead is a little tight after the surgery, and there will be some swelling at the incision sites. This is normal, and they can usually return to non-strenuous jobs within a week. Once the swelling goes down, the results will be obvious. Patients can resume their normal activities after a few weeks and almost always within a month, and with the surgeon’s approval.
A temporal procedure can last for years, particularly with good skin care hygiene and sunscreen protection. Skin also benefits from regular physical activity. Patients who smoke, though, may see some deterioration over time.
Temporal brow lift costs are modest compared to other cosmetic surgery, and the practice offers various financing options.
